Australian Labradoodle or Cobberdog
The Australian Labradoodle was founded and developed by the Rutland Manor and Tegan Park Breeding and Research Centers in Australia. Since its origination and development which continued into the early 2000s, the world has fallen in love with this breed that has become well known for its excellent temperament, soundness of form, allergy and asthma friendly coats and all over “adorableness”. Our breed philosophy is to use lineage originated from the Breed Founder/Developers themselves thereby preserving our mission to protect the integrity of the breed and the characteristics they are known for. Anything less is simply not authentic.
Australian Labradoodle Information and History
Its’ history traces back to the 1980s in Australia when Wally Conran decided he wanted to create a breed of dog that, among other things, was allergy and asthma friendly, possessed sound temperaments and health and would serve as a great therapy and service/guide dog. Initially started as what was a cross between a Labrador Retreiver and Poodle (labradoodle), further development and selective breeding with other carefully selected dogs was introduced by the Rutland Manor and Tegan Park Breeding & Research Centers who took over where Wally left off. This breed development continued over twenty-five plus years to produce the desired characteristics the research centers were looking for; highly intuitive with gentle, loving temperaments, low to non-shedding asthma and allergy coats, sturdy flowing, balanced conformation and beautiful wavy or curly fleece or fleece/wool coats in colors as exquisite as chocolate, red, apricot, cream, black, caramel and gold.
